Asia-Pacific Superyacht Association (APSA), is the leading professional and regional yacht industry association for Asia; and the first ever cross-country association established in Asia.

"Suzy Rayment is a long-term player in the Asian boating media world, and we are pleased to welcome her to our team, as APSA looks to expand its footprint in the Asia-Pacific region," said Nigel Beatty, President of APSA.

Starting as Editor of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club's house magazine Ahoy!, Suzy moved from sailing into the luxury world of superyachts when she established both Yachtstyle and Boat International China magazines for the Edipresse Group, the publishers of HK Tatler. Having bought and subsequently sold Yachtstyle magazine in 2015, she changed from print to embrace digital, and established Asia Yacht Press.


Based in Hong Kong with her marine photographer husband Guy Nowell, Suzy is passionate about boating, and in recent years helped to establish the Hong Kong Boating Industry Association. "Having lived and worked in Asia for the past 35 years, I already know many of the APSA members and look forward to meeting those whom I don't yet know!"

Suzy Rayment can be contacted by mobile or WhatsApp +852 96803511 or email
